Before I hit the sack yesterday, I receive a good news via e-mail! is one of the finalist at Reader's Choice Category at the 2011 Philippine Blog Awards! :D You can support, by going to this LINK and click the LIKE button. :D

Actually I don't intend to win this award, since 'liking contest' requires a lot of campaigning time on my part. But being one of the shortlisted blogs, I really feel happy and the support from blogger friends is really heartwarming :D Below is the e-mail that I got:

  1. Congrats for being a finalist.

    I also started a blog just a few days ago (transferred early posts out from my Facebook account), So maybe you could give a noobie some pointers on how to improve it. I am tied between making it humorous, serious or combination of both. I am also confused if I should make the topics a detailed analysis (which would make me out-of-date because I need to compile all the pertinent facts first) or just spur of the moment bite-size commentaries to make it easier to recall and not very tedious to read. The problem is, there is so much information that I wish to share, a single paragraph would not be enough. I am also arguing with myself If I want to be preachy and opinionated or just tell the story as a third party observer. One thing I wouldn’t want to take out is my penchant for adding my own personalized illustration or graphics. As you could easily deduct, I am still searching for an idendity to call uniquely my own and not just a clone or imitation of another blog. Thanks and more power to you, guys. ..and by the way,I am not after any award or recognition. I just want to learn how to bring out the best in me. Thanks again.
